(VIDEO): Beginner Mixed media scrapbook layout

Hello peeps,

Spring has definitely brought my creative mojo back atleast for now. I tried my hand at the Kraftit up Challenge this month with an over the top (from my standards) A4 scrapbook layout. One of those layouts that I just went with the flow.

If you are new to mixed media scrapbooking, there are some very simple and basic techniques that you can pick up from my video.For close ups and a step by step of this layout head over to the Colourarte blog.

(VIDEO): Gratitude Art Journal Page

Hello friends,

Today, my project is an Art Journal page made for Words and Paintery September reveal.

You can make any mixed media project to participate in this challenge. Use both the wording & colours to inspire your work.

This is another spread in my altered book which is a collection of memories and letters for my kids. So, it was only apt to have something about our everyday life. This is definitely one of the most satisfying and meaningful pieces of work I've done this month.

I found a whole heap gratitude journalling prompts on Pinterest and chose one that worked for me. The left page has a shaker sleeve made with WRMK fuse tool attached on one side. Underneath it are the remaining two sentences : "I felt joyful when..." & "My favourite part was..." and a small note for my kids about finding delight in everyday moments like a morning cuddle, an unexpected kiss or a quiet afternoon in the park.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Also playing alongwith More than words challenge blog.
I chose the Art Recipe and have included a few diecuts, a flair and a good helping of beads in the shaker pocket.
